There are some things that make for great reality television fodder. Gossiping housewives, taut and tanned partying twenty-somethings and a sassy, 7-year-old aspiring beauty queen hopped up on a sugary concoction called "go-go juice" are a few of the mindless reality plots that come to mind. But there are some things that shouldn't be documented. OBITUARY: Pop titan dies at 48 Watching a family grieve and pick up the pieces after a devastating loss is at the top of the list.

Doubleday and CBS are trading sharp words over CBS' surprise Saturday broadcast of a special on the making of its upcoming movie about the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping, which upset the publisher's carefully crafted media plan to launch a book on the topic. Both CBS and Doubleday have rights to a portion of the Smart story, CBS for its Nov. 9 movie "The Elizabeth Smart Story" and Doubleday for a book on the ordeal, to be published Tuesday, from the Utah teen's parents, Ed and Lois Smart.

Here's the choice: You can rush across town to the megaplex, wait in separate lines for $5 parking, $14 tickets and $6 popcorn, only for the pleasure of a loudmouth talking over all the best dialogue. Or, you can slide the latest DVD from Netflix into your 12-speaker, high-definition home theater system, order a pizza and become one with your La-Z-Boy and fantasies of being as funny as Vince Vaughn. Face it.

Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel, who starred as a sexually liberated housewife in the 1970s erotic movie "Emmanuelle," has died of cancer at age 60 . "Emmanuelle," the story of a sexually adventurous young model and her husband on a trip to Thailand, became as big a worldwide sensation in the 1970s as E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" has in recent months. The softcore French film was that country's highest-grossing release of 1974 and became so popular with female French moviegoers that Columbia Pictures decided to distribute the movie in the U.S. "Emmanuelle" ultimately grossed $100 million worldwide, according to the Internet Movie Database -- an exceptional sum for any film of its day and very rare for one with an X rating.  The French picture spawned seven film sequels -- four of them starring Kristel -- and TV movie spinoffs.
